What the chances are in favour of the duration of the American Union, and what dangers threaten it—Of the republican institutions of the United States, and what their chances of duration are. THE maintenance of the existing institutions of the several States depends in some measure upon the maintenance of the Union itself. It is therefore important in the first instance to inquire into the probable fate of the Union. One point may indeed be assumed at once: if the present confederation were dissolved, it appears to me to be incontestable that the States of which it is now composed would not return to their original isolated condition, but that several Unions would then be formed in the place of one. It is not my intention to inquire into the principles upon which these new Unions would probably be established, but merely to show what the causes are which may effect the dismemberment of the existing confederation.
Why the Americans display more readiness and more taste for general ideas than their forefathers the English. The principle of equality suggests to the Americans the idea of the indefinite perfectibility of man. The example of the Americans does not prove that a democratic people can have no aptitude and no taste for science, literature, or art. See also VOL. Alexis de Tocqueville Henry Reeve
